Research paper assignment consists of:
- Introduction – Typically an introduction includes a sentence or two that defines the topic (tells the reader why the topic is important or of interest), provides a context and/or some background on the topic, and a working thesis.
- First main category
- Second main category
- Third main category
- Conclusion – Restate the thesis, but restate it in a way that acknowledges or includes the argument/points you make throughout your paper. A good conclusion should represent your topic in such a way that it reaches out and connects it to the world. Ideally it will tell the reader why your topic matters, or where it will take us.
